Samuel Trenton Mercer

Nicknames: Sam, Sammy
Age/Birthday: Seventeen, November 13th
Gender: Male
God Parent: Vulcan god of forge, fire and blacksmiths
Claimed: Yes
Mortal Family: Diana Mercer- mother, age 40, engineer. 
Years in Camp: Four
Rank: Legionnaire. Samuel got to be a legionnaire in his second year at camp. It was the usual war games, and Samuel helped to lead the third cohort to victory, when he helped to devise the winning strategy.
Cohort: Third
Brief History: Sam grew up in a small apartment in Los Angeles California. In reality, the apartment was pretty nice, but Sam hated it. From the moment he was old enough to understand what it mean't to hate something he hated it. A few weeks after Sam's birthday, Diana was already up and playing her little game. What game is this? Picking up different men, she liked to go out to bars and find random men and bring them home. Most of them didn't last too long, but some became regulars. As soon as he understood what was going on, Sam hated it.

Diana never really wanted a son, and she let Sam know that. At home he was constantly beat over and over again. Sometimes he didn't even do anything, and he'd still be beaten. It got to the point where, he missed several days of school because of the pain. However he doesn't tell anyone about this because even though she's kind of crazy, he loves his mom. So even though she's horrible to him, he would never tell anyone.

School is the one place, where Sam can be accepted. In fact he seemed to be accepted by a lot of people. See, Sam was lucky enough to be in the popular group of kids at school. He enjoyed having all of these friends, but sometimes he just longed to get away from all of it. He never really took any action to get away from this though. 

There was a point in Sam's life where it was just to hard for him to handle and he became really stressed. School was harder, and Diana seemed to beat him more than ever. So Sam turned to drinking, and oh boy did he like it. He would just drink until all of his problems went away. He also started to serial date girls, breaking up with them when they got boring. A couple of times he almost went farther, but he manged to stop himself. However he told everyone that he went farther.

Then his life seemed to change. All of the sudden Diana seemed to care about her son. Maybe it was the fact that she didn't want him to become like her. So after some thinking she told Sam about camp. She then had him pack a bag. Diana then forced Sam into her car, where she took him to the Wolf House and left him. After a while of standing there confused, Sam met Lupa and her wolves and trained with them. After he passed training, he set off for Camp Jupiter. He found the camp after a week. After crossing the river he passed out, and woke up in the barracks of his cohort.
Physical Appearance: Sam has nice light brown colored hair. Through out his hair, he has natural highlights of a darker shade of brown. His hair is naturally thick, and has a very messy look to it. He keeps his hair cut short, close to his head. His hair is naturally messy. Because of this he uses hair gel to add to this effect. Often his hair, sticks up all over his head, like Albert Enstien.

Sam has bright blue eyes that really sparkle in the sun. Around his pupils you can see slight flecks of purple. Above his eyes Sam has a pair of slightly bushy blond eyebrows. Because his eyebrows are blond, its hard to see them all of the time. Then he also has long, thick blond eye lashes. His eyelashes look like they could almost get tangled up, but they never do. Sam's face is more of a rounded shape, with a distinct chin. He has low cheek bones, and more of a ski-slope type nose. 

Sam has the type of build that you would call a swimmers build. He's tall standing at a height of just 6'4''. Not to mention he has muscle, broad shoulders. His arms are long and very thin, just a bit to long for his body, with slight muscle. He's fit, he has well defined abs. His legs are long and also thin, but not extremely, he has visible calf muscle. Sam's hands are large, with long skinny fingers. For his height, his feet are around a size 15, which is just about the right size. Part of his muscle comes from hours of swimming, the rest comes from a combination of running, and other various sports. 
Personality: Sam is over all and nice guy, with a good sense of humor. He enjoys being surrounded by people, who actual care and bother to listen to what he's saying. He does enjoy cracking jokes here and there, though a lot of them can be a bit corny. Sam also has a tendency to be what people would call a flirt. He's not a player well not anymore, but he always tends to flirt with girls, even if he doesn't mean to. It's just a bad habit, that he can't seem to get rid of. Sam is also rather impulsive, he does stuff and says stuff without putting any or much thought into it.

Sam appears to be the popular guy which he is. But unlike some guys with this type of social status, Sam is not a jerk or a jackass. He is still a sweet and kind guy. When it comes to girls, Sam is completly clueless. No matter how hard he tries, he can't understand them. Sam is a very smart and clever guy, he's great for playing any sort of trivia game. Sam also has very bad ADHD, far worse than most demigods. Still he manages to maintain his good grades, taking honors classes in Science, Literature, Geometry, and Spanish. 

However Sam has another side that not a lot of people see, because he hides it. He is actually a very shy, and insecure guy. He's afraid of trusting people, because he trusted his mom and that didn't work out, now did it? He's also quite nervous when it comes to meeting new people. He's afraid he'll end up trusting them to much, and then he'll get hurt. But eventually he ends up trusting people, most of the time. He gets upset over silly things, and he often goes off to sulk. He's actually a big baby. But because he's afraid of being made fun of, he tries very hard to hide this.

Just like everyone else Sam is full of his flaws and personality quirks. He is very loyal to his friends, to an extent that he would put his life on the line to save them. He also has a tendency, well actuall he holds grudges, a lot. He also has a huge problem is impulsiveness. Not to mention Sam also tends to drink a lot. He also is very confident in himself. 
Fatal Flaw: Loyalty.
Likes:
Running
Reading
Photography
Skateboarding
Dislikes:
Bullies
Drinking
Drugs
Snakes
Pets: none
Talents:
Drawing
Forging
Gymnastics
Powers: Pyrokinesis- ability to control fire. Basically Sam can fire bend. He can do this about twenty times a day for a total of ten minutes each time. However the more he does it the more it tires him. The largest fire he can produce and be able to control is the size of a normal camp fire. 
Weapons: A Imperial Gold sword that he forged by himself, there is nothing fancy about it.

  • Augustus Radcliffe- step-father.
  • Trace Radcliffe- twin brother.
Years in Camp: Three
Rank: Legionnaire
Explanation of Higher Rank: Thayer was selected to be part of a quest and it was successful.
Cohort: Second
Brief History: Thayer and Trace were born to the goddess Fortuna and Benjamin Radcliffe, soon afterwards Fortuna left the family, leaving Benjamin to raise the twins alone. This turned their father into a slightly unsane person, having to raise two twins by himself. Luckily, he met Augustus and the two eventually married.

When Thayer and Trace were fourteen, their father decided it was time for them to go to Camp Jupiter. So one day, he took them on vacation to California. Then he just dropped them off at the Wolf House and drove away. At first the twins were confused, but soon they met Lupa and began their training. After they finished training, they were able to find camp with out too much trouble.
Physical Appearance: Thayer has short, brown hair. He keeps his hair cut very short, and he always styles it to perfection, never a stray hair. He has nice blue eyes. He occasionally wears glasses, depending on if he feels like putting his contacts in that day or not.

Personality: Thayer is a very clever person, he has a lot of wit and he is quick to use it. He is able to think of solutions to problems of the top of his head. His high level of intelligence has lead him to be slightly annoying. He tends to over think things, and give long complicated answer. He also tends to speak long sentences and use big words and that no one understands.

Thayer is a very kind person, not friendly, kind. He is not one to go out of his way to become friends with someone, but he is nice. If he sees someone who looks they need help, he will help them. He always tries to smile at people as he walks by them, in attempt to brighten their day.

But like most people Thayer can have his flawed side. For one he can be pretty selfish, but he really does not mean too. He just cares about himself and Trace more than others. He can also be oblivious to what's going on around him, he tends to spend time in his own little world. He also has difficulties holding a conversation with people, he has a difficult time talking to people.
Fatal Flaw: He can be rather self absorbed, he tends to block out the people around him and only really cares about himself and his brother.

Other: He has a photographic memory. His form will be edited at a later date, I am not sure when but it will happen, I will let someone know when this occurs.

Phineas Isaiah Hays

Nicknames: Finny
Age/Birthday: 17, April 10th
Gender: Male
God Grandparents:
Minerva goddess of wisdom
Mercury god of messengers.
Claimed: Yes
Mortal Family:
Brennan Hays- son of Minerva-dead.
Lizzy Hays- daughter of Mercury- dead.
Alexander Hays- paternal grandfather- caretaker.
Years in Camp: Seven
Rank:Legionnaire
Explanation of rank: In one of his early years at camp, Phineas recovered an important missing camp artifact.
Cohort: Fourth cohort
Brief History: Phineas is one of those children, of demigods who managed to last into adulthood. So basically, he's kind of rare. There aren't exactly a lot of demigods, who have made it into adult hood. His parents were lucky enough to be two of those demigods.

Brennan  was just a lonely son of Minerva, when he met Lizzy James the daughter of Mercury. The two of them were only fifteen. Yet right away they felt a connection, an attraction. They began dating that summer, and made it all the way until they were thirty. When they were around the age of twenty, they got married and had a son, Finnegan.

Brennan and Lizzy loved their son, and raised him the best they could. As soon as he could walk, they trained him in case he ever needed to fight a monster. They hoped that this would never happen. Unfortunately, this hope had a sad ending. When Finnegan was only ten years old the family was attacked by a monster. Brennan and Lizzy were killed, and Phineas was orphaned.

Luckily for him, a satyr had been keeping tabs on the family. After killing the monster, Phineas was taken to the Wolf House by his grandfather. After training with Lupa, he found his way to camp.
Physical Appearance: Phineas has short hair, that ends just above his ears. His hair is rather thick, and some what of a mess. Often he will use a dab of hair gel, to style his hair so it sticks up a bit in the front. His hair is a nice dark brown color, that sometimes looks black. He likes to say his hair is the color of dark chocolate.

To go with his nice brown hair, Phineas has a pair of chocolate brown color eyes. His eyes often look very sad, even when he is happy. This is from the pain of loosing his parents. He has been told by people who knew his father, that he has his father's eyes.

Phineas has a slight athletic built, but it's not very athletic. He is on the skinny side, with slight muscle. He plays lacrosse, which explains his slight athletic build. Besides this he does not do much exercise so he is rather skinny. He stands at a height of five feet, ten inches making him slightly tall, but not by a lot.
Personality: Phineas what some people might call a genius. This kid is seriously smart. However, his smartness isn't always the best thing. He's one of those people who is so smart, he has a hard time functioning around other people. Basically, he doesn't know how to interact or really talk to other people. He only feels comfortable around the other members of his cohort.

Phineas is well shy, is how some might describe it. He is very quiet, and he often does not talk to people. He longs to have conversations with people, but he always says the wrong thing, so he steers himself away from talking. When he does talk, apart from never knowing what to say, he also tends to use very big words that no one knows the meaning of.

Phineas is of course full of other flaws and maybe some other good things. For one he seems to have a lot of self-pride, which can be good and bad. It gives him some confidence, but it also gets to his head as he thinks he is very smart and amazing because of how smart he is. He is also very loyal, which can be good because he is always there for those close to him, but it is bad because he will risk too much to save the people he cares for.
Likes:

  • Books. As a decendent of Minerva, Phineas has a large love for knowledge. He also enjoys just sitting down and reading. He has read three complete sets of encyclopedias, and five different dictonaries. However he also enjoys fictional books, and other types of books. He recently read the book Argo, and he really liked it. 
  • Lacrosse. Phineas's grandfather forced him to join an athletic team at school, so he picked lacrosse. He spent most of the time sitting on the bench. But the one time he did play, he got to shine. It turns out, he is pretty good at the sport. He managed to calculate the movements, and was able to score several goals.
  • Trivia. When it comes to trivia of any sort, chances are Phineas is going to know the answer. He has spent so much time collecting knowledge from various sources such as books, and even television that he knows a lot of stuff. He likes to learn about a bunch of weird catagories, because it is his dream to go on Jeopardy. 
  • Learning. Phineas loves to learn. Whenever he learns something new, he gets very excited. He often spends most of his time reading text books, or searching the internet, looking for stuff to learn. 
  • Astronomy. Phineas has a deep love for stars and planets. As a child, he and his mom would star gaze. He knows all of the constellations, and the planets and a bunch of other stuff. When he's older, Phineas wants to be a rocket scientist, so he can use his love for astronomy and his intelligence at the same time. 
  • Science. Phineas loves science, if you could marry science he would. He subject fascinates him. He enjoys learning about all the different kinds of science. When he was younger he always entered the science fairs, and he always won. Now he enjoys doing experiments in his free time.

Dislikes:

  • Death. Ever since his parents died in front of him, Phineas has been afraid of death. He is afraid of when he will die. Whenever he sees death, he gets very sad and freaks out, even fake deaths on television.
  • Spiders. They just creep him out.


Fatal Flaw: His inability to function properly around other people.
Pets: none
Talents:

  • Skateboarding. When he was around the age of eight, he was given a skateboard for Christmas. His father then taught him how to ride it. Since then, Phineas has loved to skateboard, it actually reminds him of his father. Often you can see him with a skateboard. 
  • Photography. Phineas enjoys taking pictures of nature, and occasionally people. He feels like it's a nice way to express himself. Often he carries a camera around his neck.

Hacking. Phineas is very good at hacking things. Not that he tells people about this. He once hacked into his schools website, to change the lunch menu. The school still doesn't know how it got changed. 
Powers: none
Weapons: Phineas uses an imperial gold sword.
Year-Round or Summer: Year-Round, occasionally he sneaks out of camp to visit his grandfather.
Other: none that I can think of at the moment.
